The Nano Letters Early Career Board (ECB) was created in 2015 to provide a channel for early career researchers in nanoscience to get an inside look at scientific publishing while also providing valuable insights that shape the journal’s direction. It also serves as an opportunity to ensure that the journal reflects the needs of early career researchers.

Over the years, the ECB has contributed to the journal’s growth in a variety of ways. Members have served as ambassadors at conferences as well as on social media. The Board has also organized Virtual Issues, Mini-Reviews, and even ACS Axial Posts–including the one below about COVID-19's impact on early career researchers and their work/life balance:
